PhotoWalk

16-01-18

Met up with my two photo buddies today for a walk around part of the town and of course plenty of coffee stops. It was (for once) a bright sunny day but cold and windy. Took my Olympus EPL1 with me and a film camera.

Possibly The last Image From The Sigma

10-01-17

Before venturing into town this morning I checked my Sigma DP1, enough power in the battery, was the memory card in the camera ! When I switched it on everything worked except I couldn’t see anything through the lens, it was as if the lens cap was on. Information was on the screen, I could view photo’s on the memory card, but can’t capture an image. It’s had a lot of use and I bought it secondhand, so I’m not too upset. I’ll email Sigma UK tomorrow to see if it can be serviced.

This is a great cafe that gives vulnerable young people and adults cooking and catering experience, with all income going directly back to supporting the charity’s cooking and catering projects.

 

Ice Skating !

I still haven’t managed to drag persuade anyone to go ice skating with me, all I get is strange looks and talk about broken bones, especially at my age !!!!!!

Been checking on the progress of the rink over the last week.

Almost Finished

Today the rink was up and running, but full of kids having a great time.

Very apt as it was tricky walking on the pavements after the snow.

I haven’t given up hope of ice skating, bribery and corruption next !

Still Some Colour

28-11-17

Went for a quick walk to town this morning, needed some exercise and some treats, not to mention a box of cat food for the lovely cat family at my neighbours. The day was really bright and chilly, I was surprised how much colour some of the trees still had.

The one on the right was the last real department store in the city, sadly it closed earlier this year. I guess it will be turned into apartments.

Now With Snow !

The Christmas tree in the city centre has been given a coating snow, and nearby I saw a poster advertising that there would be an ice skating rink setup from early December in one of the squares, I’ve got to have a go !!!!!!!! 

I tried a different way of processing these images from the Sigma DP1, Sigma software first, then import into my old copy of Photoshop elements, then export for web.

It’s Arrived

“Happy Halloween”

31-10-17

Happy Halloween, went out with my photowalk buddies to the local cemetery today to get in the spirit of things. Had a great walk and took some film and digital images, finished it off with a cup of tea and some blood red tomato and pepper soup at the Sir David Attenborough Arts Centre.

The gremlins have been at working against me this week, downloaded a large windows 10 update (Creators), big mistake, my laptop isn’t working well at all now. Hopefully I might be able to restore it back to before the update. And to add insult to injury my portable hard drive fell on to the floor and isn’t working, windows is attempting to repair it as I write this blog post !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
